T., June 17 — Harry Payne Whitneys Whiskaway gave Benjamin Blocks Morvich an unmerciful healing in the running of the Carlton Stakes at Aqueduct today. He was in receipt of fifteen pounds from the Kentucky Derby winner, but it appeared that he could "nave taken his measure under equal weight, so ridiculously easy was his success. Then back of Morvich came J. S. Cosdens 5,000 Snob II. and the only other starter. Frank J. Farrells Horologe. There was a tremendous half-holiday crowd out and the fact that the unbeaten Morvich was to perform was the attraction. Conditions wcr* ideal for the contest and the race was run In i :3» "f. . wit.i the winner beius eased : tap eight lengths before the son of Runny-mede and Hymir that has tasted defeat for the first time. The race was a truly nm one, and Whiskaway simply smothered his opponents with his marvelous speed. Little time was lost at tho barrier and when Morvich dwelt, slightly he was last of the four to be under way. Penman got Whiskaway away at a terrific pace and he maintained that killing clip until the race was safely put away when lie took him up and had him under restraint at the end. Johnson, after being away Just a bit slowly, lost no time in sending Morvich into second place and he raced there throughout and there was never a time that he was close enough to give Whiskaway any concern. Snob II. was always third, but Morvich was leading him by about as big a margin as the Whitney colt was showing the way to the Derby winner. Swinging for home. Penman glanced hack and still kept Whiskaway at his best pace, though Morvich had not reduced any of his lead. Then Johnson drew bis whip on Morvich. It was of no avail and he could not catch that Hying leader. Then Penman went to the whip and it fell once on Whiskaway. Bat hardly had he hit the colt than Penman began to care him as though in apology for even intimating that there was any danger. WINS IJF EIGHT LENGTHS. From then on to the finish it was no rase, and at the end the chestnut nrai being eased up a full eight lengths before Morvich, which in turn beat Snob II. three ai 1 a half lentrths. Horologe was five lengths farther away. The fractional time for the race tens the story of just what sort of a c It had dethroned the unbeaten three-year-old. Whiskaway went to the quarter in 22%, half in ■!•"•. five-eighths in f 7. three-quarters in 1 : : ■■?,. seven-eighths In 1 :23% and then eased up a mile in I :36%. Had there been anything to make him run in the filial eighth he would surely have hung out a new mar; for the mile distance at Aqueduct. The Carlton was worth ,100 to the winner. Only three started in the steeplechase handicap over the short course and then only two finished when Mahoney went down with Joseph E Davis Eaiiocker at the last fence. The winner turned v.r in II. W. Maxwells Decisive and at the end he was doing his best to win from the Greentree Stables old mare Soumangha, Decisive was good enough to force the pace from the first striae. He jumped cleanly and Cheyne had him under a nice restraint to the last half mile. When called on he still had enough left, but not more than enough when Bethel, who avoided the early pace, brought Soumangha along with a rush. FIRST OF THE SC.V BRIARS TO WI3T. Willis Sharpe Kilmers Sunference, the home-bred son of Sun Briar and Conference, was winner of the Hudson, the five-eighths stakes for two-year-olds, that was worth $." ,. ""•-•"• to the winner. In a previous race Sunference had disappointed Gene Wayland, his trainer, and blinkers were added to his equipment in this contest. This may have made the difference, for he won like a thoroughly good colt. Cherry Pie, from tiie Greentree Stable, was the one to take second place, and third place fell to Bud Lar-ner, racing for John E Madden. Martingale, the J. S. Cosdcn starter, early found his way into a contending position, hut he met with repeated interference and inside of the last eightii, when he appeared to have a real chance to catch the winner, he swerved sharply to the inner rail. Cherry Pie was another that was in close quarters for the greater part of the race and when he found racing room he was gaining on Sunference until he was only beaten by a neck. There should be an awakening in New York steeplechase circles with the arrival of Continued on twelfth pace. i j j i j | ! I j ; | I j MORVICH MEETS REVERSE !
